    I don't know, I will have to check.
    They should have the latest because the job was just done.

    If it's 2.0 or higher I have a tool I have written to reset the local administrator password.

    I didn't check yet but I know it is at least 2.0
    Besides the server, the system has a Webtalk I-PORT
    Does it affect the I-PORT?
    What if there are multiple server users that have the
    highest password level, does it just reset the local admin?
    How much does your tool cost?

    If you can log onto EBT then it it is the same user name and password, what version of EBT is on the server, "not WEBtalk" .
    If I would of killed my wife when I first met her, I'd be out of jail by now!

    Ask your customers to set you up an account - There is no need to reset the local administrators account password.

    Encrypted passwords are stored in BACTalk.mdb file. I don't know how to decrypt. But I have tried this method on Envision 2.6 and it works on small jobs. Make a backup of the whole rep/job folder, Uninstall envision and delete the Alerton folder from hard drive. Reinstall envision and give your own admin password. Then create the original rep/job and replace it with the backup. But make sure not to overwrite the BACTalk.mdb file.

    Its actually pretty easy to delete the LocalAdministrator Password and make Envision to display the set LocalAdministrator password window. Go to regedit and open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ then delete Alerton\LocalAdmin sub key. I have only tried this with Envision 2.6 and I do not know how this would behave on 3.0, try it at your own risk!
